  • PLEASE bring a salad or dessert to share and your own reusable, non-disposable dishes (plates/cups/bowls) and utensils so that we can limit the recycling and waste that we generate.  A dish washing station will be provided for rinsing your dirty dishes.
  • We will be providing beef burgers, hot dogs, and veggie burgers, as well as drinks, condiments, and chips.
  • Cost is $5 per person, $4 for children payable at the park (checks made out to First Unitarian Church or exact change if paying in cash would be much appreciated).
  • We'll be playing water balloon volleyball at the picnic. Those wishing to engage in this wholesome activity are requested to bring their own beach towels! So, along with your dishes, cups, silverware, etc., bring a beach towel or two!
  • If you would like to be part of the team that makes it all happen, please contact Joe Herring at  or 801-440-5521. We need some extra hands to assist with set up, grill tending and other food service tasks,  and of course, clean up.
